THE BROCKPORT POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL BE
TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ON SEPTEMBER 27TH FROM 10:00 AM TO
Brockport, New York –
On September 27th, 2014, from 10
AM to 2 PM the Brockport Police Department and the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA) will give the public its ninth opportunity in three
years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially
dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your
pills for disposal to the Brockport PD located at 1 Clinton Street,
Brockport. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
This initiative addresses a vital public
safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets
are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of
prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number
of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show
that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and
friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans
are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused
medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both
pose potential safety and health hazards.
DEA is in the process of
approving new regulations that implement the Safe and Responsible Drug
Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an
“ultimate user” (that is, a patient or their family member or pet owner) of
controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to
entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also
allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to
dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances.
appointments are necessary to participate in “National Take Back Day.”
Waste from pharmacies, veterinary offices and pharmaceutical
businesses are not accepted at these Pharmaceutical waste drop-offs.
